Example text

The Early Church was organized to care for the poor and for the widows and to do missionary work. The autonomy of the local church in apostolic days is strongly evident. THERE WAS A STANDARD OF FELLOWSHIP The fellowship was not all inclusive. Men had to come up to a certain standard to be accepted in the fellowship. Immoral persons were not permitted in that fellowship; neither were those who were unruly or walked disorderly (II Thes. 3:6). Domineering and sectarian leaders were excluded (III John 9-11).

Their office is spoken of in Acts 14:14,15: "Which when the apostles, Barnabas and Paul, heard of, they rent their clothes, and ran in among the people crying out, And saying, Sirs, why do ye these things?. " Paul calls Apollos an apostle. In I Cor. " And then in verse nine, "For I think that God hath set forth us the apostles," evidently linking Apollos with himself as an apostle. Thus Apollos is the seventeenth apostle. In the sixteenth chapter of Romans we have a remarkable declaration by Paul concerning Andronicus and Junia.

The gift is not intended as a vehicle to establish new doctrine. We are warned by Peter of men who will come into the church with "damnable heresies" which can lead to great confusion. Some of the most serious heresies owe their origin to the "private interpretation" of some self-styled prophet. Despite these cautions, let us say that we sorely need the inspiration and revelation gifts in operation in the church. May God give His ministers discernment to distinguish between the true and the false.
